    Why regret!? Your dress is so gorgeous! I’m not completely sure how it would look on your dress, but you could always try a floral sash too. This is the one that I bought. Sorry for the dark photo.

    I love your dress!!! Did you get it at RK Bridal??  They are great.  I love the dress, and definitely think you should go for a blingy belt, a lace trimmed veil, and a crystal comb.  I think it might just be your nerves, because that dress is gorgeous!

    @Trishthedish36: I ordered my sash from the red magnolia on etsy. The thing I would suggest though is many sellers will mail you a small sample of the fabric if you want to compare colors for free (or the cost of a stamp.) Its worth doing since mine isnt the exact color I wanted so I should have taken her offer and got the sample of fabric.

    I think a plain ivory belt suits your dress! It’s already so intricate and detailed. Put some cute flowers in your hair and voila, sounds like it’ll fit your theme better!

    I actually made a bridal sash like the one above, mine is black though, but if you needed help I could give you a few hints if you feel like your crafty enough, here is mine…and FTR I think this type of sash (not necessarily the color though unless it went with your theme lol) would look gorgeous on your dress. People worry about too much going on, but if you look at a lot of the popular designer gowns out there some of them have a lot going on and it looks amazing.

    there is a little sparkle here and there on this, not a ton…im probably going to add more to it, but i’m not wearing this im selling it because I bought another one.

    Don’t regret a thing, you look stunning! I have an all lace vintage inspired dress too, and understand why you would go with the 40’s inspired dark lip and sparkly accessories. However like you I’m having a more rustic feeling and I personally thought that that particular look would   Not be the most appropriate for the setting. Just the direction I chose though, you will look great in any of those looks!

    ok, I’m confused, how could you possibly describe  your dress as potentially tacky. That is the classiest dress ever. You look amazing in that dress. Don’t over do the accessories. What are thinking about for a veil?I think a birdcage might look great

    I don’t have any accessory ideas for you but I think that dress is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen on a real bride.  You look stunning.

    @Trishthedish36:  I love that dress! That was one of the ones I considered, I just don’t like v-backs on me. I think it is beautiful and not at all tacky! The pattern is so beautiful, I would keep the accessories simple (that is, not too intricate in detail) so as not to create an overwhelming look. I prefer a romantic look in makeup and accessories, but if something more bold suits you, that will work as well. I do not think a sleek and shiny hairstyle suits the dress though.
